This Agreement contains the terms and conditions that apply to an individual's or entity's participation in the USZoom Affiliates Program (the "Program"). As used in this Agreement, "we" means USZoom, "you" means the applicant, and "product" means any item offered for sale on the iPostal1.com site. "Site" means a World Wide Web site and, depending on the context, refers either to the www.ipostal1.com site or to the site that you will link to our site.
Enrollment in the Program Enrollment is determined on a case by case basis. We may reject your request to join if we determine (in our sole discretion) that your site is unsuitable for the Program.
Listing Products on Your Site You may select to display information about our products on your site. You may use images and descriptions from our site for this purpose. You will be responsible for the content, style, and placement of these references. You will provide a special link from reference on your site to the corresponding iPostal1 online entry. Each link will connect directly to a single item in our online catalog, using a special link format that we give you. You may add or delete software (and related links) from your site at any time without our approval.
Order Processing We will process orders placed by customers who follow special links from your site to the www.ipostal1.com online catalog entries. We reserve the right to reject orders that do not comply with any requirements that we periodically may establish. We will be responsible for all aspects of order processing and fulfillment. Among other things, we will prepare order forms; process payments, cancellations, and returns; and handle customer service. We will track sales made to customers who purchase software using special links from your site to our catalog and will send you reports summarizing this sales activity. The form, content, and frequency of the reports may vary from time to time in our discretion. To permit accurate tracking, reporting, and commission accrual, you must ensure that the special links between your site and our site are properly formatted.
Commissions We will pay you a commission on sales from your special link. For a sale to generate a commission, the customer must follow a special link from your site to our online catalog, purchase one or more products using our online ordering system, accept delivery of the products at the shipping destination, and remit full payment to us. We will not pay referral fees on products that are added to a customer's Shopping Cart directly from the www.ipostal1.com catalog (instead of through a special link from your site), even if the customer previously followed a link from your site to our catalog.
Commission Schedule You will earn a commission of 10% of the mailbox rental fee for a period up to 10 months from the initial order for each customer signing up for a Digital Mailbox subscription on ipostal1.com from a text link, banner, or email with your affiliate id.
Commission Payment We will pay you commissions on a quarterly basis. Approximately 30 days following the end of each calendar quarter, we will send you a check for the referral fees earned on products that were shipped during that quarter, less any taxes that we are required by law to withhold. However, if the commissions payable to you for any calendar quarter are less than $50.00, we will hold those commissions until the total amount due is at least $50.00 or (if earlier) until this Agreement is terminated. If Digital Mailbox rental fees that generated a commission is refunded to the customer, we will deduct the corresponding commission from your next quarterly payment. If there is no subsequent payment, we will send you a bill for the commission due back to us.
Policies and Pricing Customers who buy products through this Program will be deemed to be customers of the iPostal1 Digital Mailbox provider they sign up with. Accordingly, all iPostal1 rules, policies, and operating procedures concerning customer orders, customer service, and sales will apply to those customers. We may change our policies and operating procedures at any time. For example, we will determine the prices to be charged for products sold under this Program in accordance with our own pricing policies. Product prices and availability may vary from time to time. Because price changes may affect products that you already have listed on your site, you may not include price information in your products descriptions. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to present accurate information, but we cannot guarantee the availability or price of any particular product.
Identifying Yourself as an Affiliate We may make available to you a small graphic image that identifies your site as an Affiliate Site Program participant. You will prominently display this logo or the phrase "iPostal1 Affiliate Site" somewhere on your site.
We may waive this requirement based on the placement of the special link to our site from your site.
We may modify the text or graphical image of this notice from time to time. In addition, we encourage (but do not require) you to include a link to the iPostal1 home page at http://www.iPostal1.com.
Limited License We grant you a non-exclusive, revocable right to use the icon and message described above and such other images for which we grant express permission, solely for the purpose of identifying your site as a Program participant. You may not modify the icon, the message, or any of our images in any way. We reserve all of our rights in the icon, the message, any other images, our trade names and trademarks, and all other intellectual property rights. We may revoke your license at any time by giving you written notice.
